It seems as though someone has stolen the sun here in Lancaster. She’s been missing for quite some time and we’d really like her to come home because there are some great events coming up for Mother’s Day and the rest of May. So if anyone sees a large bright orb, please tell her we miss her and want her to come home. Until then, here are some events that will still shine without the sun.
Now let’s talk mothers. They are often overworked and under appreciated but this weekend is a great time to let them know how much you love them.
Lancaster City hosts its ArtWalk this weekend, a self-guided tour taking place on Sunday.
